Great Coco Coir Deal
    #3700071 - 01/29/05 10:57 PM (11 years, 10 months ago)

Hey guys, just wanted to let you know that Petsmart currently has a pretty good deal for coco coir for those of us that use it in casings.  I just picked this up at a local retail store and figured I'd let everyone know.  Heres the link:  Petsmart.com

:mushroom2:EDIT:  This link was posted just to show a picture and give the company's product # incase you needed to ask someone at a local retail store to find it.  The shipping, if you order this online, will totally negate any amount of deal this may be.  GO TO A STORE AND BUY THIS, OR ITS NOT THAT GREAT OF A DEAL. :mushroom2:

When a brick cost 2$(canadian) and even less sometimes, I dont see a point in shipping some Coir here.

If you go down to your local pet store for example, sometimes they will charge you 7.50 for one brick(it happened to a friend of mine, that has a lizrd)

Because it says reptile bedding and has a picture of a lizard , when 2 doors down he could have picked up brick for 2$ a pop from the garden store.

So, you can get a brick for $2 canadian. You don't see a point in shipping coir to Canada. Then you go to a local pet store and can be charged $7.50 for a brick. And this one brick has a picture of a lizard... What?

Anyways, I'm sure this thread wasn't about getting Canadian buyers interested in buying from an American based pet company, so...

Thanks NeedMoreSleep, definitely a good deal there!

I was just posting a link so people could see it, but I actually did go down the road to the store and picked this up. This is 3 bricks for like 6 bucks... Usually when I get it, its like 4 bucks a brick... If you're too lazy and wanna order online, more power to ya... No need to come on here and talk shit about it though...

Geez man, dont get pissed.

If I was American, I still wouldnt order coir online  :wink:
(for one thing its like buying a can of air, its everywhere already)

And I love how you try to paint my post as nonsensical, when I stated clearly that when you buy Coir used for growing, its WAY cheaper then buying Coir for pets(even though its the EXACT same thing)

So, I would advise Americans to do their shopping at the GARDEN STORE, pet stores = a ripp off, when it comes to coir, and you know what....someone that needs to see this might have just read it.

So it did serve its puropose, it had nothing to do with "talking shit" or trying to make buddy look bad.

"No need to come on here and talk shit about it though.."

I didnt, I DONT do that, I take cultivation seriously, and I'm not one to really enjoy OTD, so I dont know where you came up with that, geez I thought I was being pretty nice, straigh forward, but not an asshole.

As IGnosticAbhorI  wisely said.......

"Yea, no need to talk shit....it's the shroomery guys, it's all in good fun..."

Chill, :stoned:

O and I don't mean to rain on anybody's parade but shipping is...the same price as the acual cost(6.00)...here's the shipping charges...

The total weight fee is based on the cumulative shipping weight of all dog food, cat food and litter in the shopping cart. Weight fees are based on actual shipping weight and not product weight. If weight fees apply, you will see them listed for each item in the shopping cart and at checkout.


Up to 5.9 lbs. $1.00

16 - 25.9 lbs. $4.00

But maybe it's good for someone in short supply...or someone local?....
Just some friendly info..

"O and I don't mean to rain on anybody's parade but shipping is...the same price as the acual cost(6.00)..."

See, thats exactly why I dont order 30$ worth of Mycobags, because the shipping would = 30$
(btw in my post about Mycobags Scatmanrav makes an awsome post about making your own bags(if anyone needs that)

Personally I am going to make some of these (cheap bags)AND go in on an order of mycobags with some Canadians over at the nook.
I will use both, and if I cant make quality bags , I wont order a second batch of bags. :wink:

Hey man, sorry bout that, I wasn't trying to be a dick, I guess I just read ur post wrong.  Plus my stupid ass girlfriend just... grrrr nevermind.  Anyway, I absolutely understand the whole "its not worth it b/c of shipping" thing.  I just posted that link so people could see a picture.  I actually got it at the retail store, thought it was a good idea, and posted a link.  Its been my experience on numerous forums that people scream, "LIIIINNNNKK!?!?!?" when I post something like this... anyway, have a good one peeps, and happy shroomin to all  :grin:

EDIT: Also to ur other point, I have never been able to find coco coir at any damn garden store.  I check them out every once in a while but they never have it.  pisses me off, cuz i know i'd be able to get it even cheaper.  oh well, these 3 bricks should last me a while...

If you can find it local..thats the way to go, but it can be difficult. I order online but still, take psilocybes advice and order from garden places. You need to go to hydroponics places..they got it. You can get bails that make 70 quarts as opposed to the 8 from them little bricks and its like 20 bucks shipped..

Ummm...you guys do know that myco supply has bricks for 1.50 USD and the bails for 6.50

General Hydroponics

Myco is easily the best deal.

I should

Sorry Magash, didn't know that.  Is it still a deal with shipping though?  Anyway, wasn't trying to take a pop at the sponsors, sorry if it looks bad in that way.  I never really thought about it like that...
